Challenge Based Learning
Engage, Investigate, Act
Challenge Based Learning is a framework for learning while solving real-world challenges. The framework fuels collaboration to identify big ideas, ask thoughtful questions, and identify, investigate, and solve challenges. Challenge Based Learning helps learners gain deep subject area knowledge and develop the skills necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world.
How Teachers Use Challenge Based Learning
Challenge Based Learning invites teachers to become collaborators in learning who leverage the power of students, seek new knowledge alongside students, and model positive habits of mind and new ways of thinking and learning.
How you can support students in their Challenge Based Learning process:
- Model the role of teacher-learner by actively participating in activities expected of your students.
- Provide time and space for students to learn and make mistakes through trial and error.
- Steer student learning by identifying the learning goals and curriculum standards that will help them keep the “larger picture” in mind.
- Build a network of support with peer educators who are implementing Challenge Based Learning in their classrooms.
